We really enjoyed our time in Jerash, Jordan. The city itself is great, along with the ruins. It was cool as they had horses there the day we were around so it felt like the old Roman ruins were coming alive as we explored the...More

We arrived into Amman airport from Dubai around 8am, hired a car and drove straight to the ruins. It's only about 1.5 hours and easy to get to. There was a parking space near the official entrance which cost about $USD 2. We walked around...More

Jerash was rediscover in 1806, when a German traveler Ulrich Seetzen came across and recognized a small part of the ruins. The ancient city was almost completely buried in sand. It was a big suprise to find this remarkable preservation. It has been gradually revealed through...More

If you get the chance you should definitely come to Jerash. It is the most intact ancient Roman City outside of Italy. But it is also part Greek, Byzantine and Nabetean. It includes some amazing sites like Hadrian's Arch, the Temple of Zeus, the Temple...More

We went summer time but didn’t expect that the sun would be so hot. Best thing is to bring a shawl or umbrella and please make sure to use a sunscreen. Nonetheless, Jerash will never disappoint you. The Roman Ruins are very picturesque and interesting...More

Ancient Gerasa or Jerash is a major Decapolis city and an important site to visit on a trip to Jordan. It was clean, lovely and well preserved.

This was a stop on a package tour, which we tend to do in regions where we might not be comfortable traveling on our own. I'm extremely glad we did, since I might not have considered visiting this site. I was astonished to see the...More

An absolute must when in the Amman area. Only about an hour or so north of the capital, where you can definitely spend a few hours exploring this magnificent ancient town. It's in really good condition! Very highly recommended!

I cant remember if parking was free or paid simply because we had booked our tour in advance inclusive of entrance fees etc. The parking is right by the visitor center entrance to the site but you still need to walk a bit... More

I would advice Jerash which is much more beautiful and big than Kerak. I think it is nearer as well.
